Escargot Member Directory


Will there be an Escargot Member Directory (just like how the real MSN Messenger had)?
That would be nice.


I don’t know but it sure would help find people. instead of searching posts on the forum, the member directory looks to be the option we should have.


yeah it would be good
i agree


we need it.


then try PMing @valtron


That would be very cool!


@valtron has internal access to the Escargot service, not @TReKiE. You’re basically asking for another contact megathread if that’s the case. :stuck_out_tongue:


as always people are too little to understand the complexity of escargot.


I’m just reviving this back from the dead. I am currently building one with searchable fields :slight_smile:

I would like some input to what people would like to be able to search.

For example,

Return all fields that are between a certain age.
Return all fields that are male.
Return all fields that have the second name tinkerbell.

e.t.c e.t.c e.t.c.


I need some help with the design side of this. I will deal with the forms and SQL but if anyone is interesting in helping me with the design then please add me on msn to talk.

OK, sounds good.


What if people just want to casually chat with their friends every now and then? Wouldn’t they then be exposed for everyone to add?


Then they don’t have to add said person or register in the database ? :slight_smile:


Well, the first part made sense, but the second one didn’t.


I know what you mean. If you don’t want to be added then don’t use it. If you remember MSN addies was given out all over the place.

If you don’t want to be found then don’t add yourself to the database?


Oh, it’s an “add yourself” thing?

Sorry, I’ve hardly used MSN.


I am looking for people to push over their details on this searchable database for contacts. I am going to improve this over time but I need people to start to input their details into the database. It’s backed up so no need to worry about data loss and I will be working on it live in the background.

Head over to here and add yourself. I will be designing it exactly like msn but need to get some data in first.


I tried but it only gave an error that says to contact you


I have corrected this issue :slight_smile: should work now. I am currently in the process of doing few things.


it’s cool but i think it should be somewhat like the AIM User Directory where you can search by interest or have random people display on the home screen along with being able to search by name
